Welcome to kidlapse. The main app page lists all of your kidlapse projects.
To add photos to a project or to create a timelapse movie click the project name. If you need to change the name or start date click the edit link.
Click the new project link to start a new project.
Create or Edit Project
Enter a project name (i.e. the name of the child you’re creating a timelapse for) and the start year and month for the project (i.e. the child’s birth year and month). Kidlapse will automatically add months from the start date until today, and will add additional months as needed while you work on the project.
Edit Years and Start Timelapse
Click a year to start adding photos. This page shows how many photos have already been added to each year. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a photo for every month, kidlapse will just skip empty months.
Once you have added at least two photos you can click the Create Timelapse Movie link below the list of years to start rendering a timelapse. If a timelapse has been created then it will be available to download below the Create Timelapse Movie link.
Edit Monthly Photos
To add a photo click Choose File and browse for the file to upload and then click the Upload button. Kidlapse will attempt to detect faces in the uploaded photo. After upload the selected face is shown with a pink border. For photos where more than one face is detected you can change the selection by clicking the appropriate face preview. If kidlapse cannot detect a face an error is shown at the top of the page and you will need to select a different photo.
Click Remove Current Photo to delete the uploaded photo and thumbnails for a month.
The previews on this page are low resolution thumbnails of the faces found in each uploaded photo. Kidlapse stores the original full resolution version of each upload which is used when you create a timelapse movie.
For the best results, you should pick photos where your child is looking forward as directly as possible and is not too small or too large in the frame. During rendering kidlapse rotates each photo and zooms in or out as needed so the eyes are aligned between each photo.
Create Timelapse Movie
It can take a few minutes to render a kidlapse movie, especially if you have added a lot of photos to the project. We’ll send you an email when the movie is complete with a link to download it. You can also check the project page — the movie will be available to download below the list of years once rendering is finished.
Kidlapse will only work on one movie at a time for each project. If a render is in progress you’ll see an error on this page. Please wait for the previous movie to complete before starting a new one.
